oh now shmarya,love the article but we usually don't demonise others.just you.as for natural tribalistic tendencies.family,far family,religion,race,language,ect.i would say just another tool created in man by the creator to be used for good or evil.i'd also venture the pentagon is king at useing this.you decide for good or evil.the rest of the world being no better.how do use use yours?

wonderful another disgusting article!maybe the rabbi had abad day such aminor story DOES NOT reflect the opinion of chabad and i am sure this has no basis in torah or how the chabad rebbe held

why dont you name and shame the rabbi?

still feel loyalty for the GOOD he did to you?

why dont you ever post the GOOD?

How can I read the original post, if I don't have a Typepad membership?

Obviously I take offense at this.

I take offense at the OMG-level bigotry expressed by the shaliach, and at the fact that he is a head shaliach -- 2.2% of American Jews are black, doing the math this is, in theory, 132,000 American Jews any given year that he would flatly dismiss as being unfit to marry his daughter.

Beautiful.

Unless one of those 132,000 is her bashert, in which case she will die lonely and unmarried, for want of an open minded father who could see past his own resemblance to the Eastern European goy who raped his maternal ancestor to give him his oh-so-European/oh-so-superior features.

Disgusting.

Likewise disgusting is your tone of voice in the article as if this "otherness" is a sine qua non which defines edut ha'Toranit -- you know that this is one of my biggest avodos to combat this and to hear it said "as if this is metzi'os" pisses me off b/c it de-legitimizes the efficacy of everything I'm doing.

and btw, the sefira album is selling like Rebbe pictures in Crown Heights!

PLEASE NAME THE HEAD SHALIACH!!!!

point of information please.where do you obtain this 2.2% from????????are these african americans of the jewish faith?ortho?coserv.?ect?

maybe the black hebrew sect? a certain cult with jewish sidedressings?

B"H
The feeelings of that Shaliach are clearly opposite of the Chabad teachings and the Rebbe's own words on the subject.
See this video for example:
"Melting Pot" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-etVw9PZUs

OK, so we are treated to an anecdote of a Shliach displaying mild negativity, and I do mean mild. But why this completely unsupported conjecture that there is a deep seated demonisation of the "Other". Jumping to a conclusion, without appeal to evidence or intuition, the statement is served up as self-evident. Why play with pre-existing prejudice against orthodox Jews to make them look bad, once again, in the media?? Will good come of this?

Hey wait a minute! Didn't Moishe Rabbenuh marry a "Shwartza"?

The fact that this kind of insidious bigotry runs rampant through our communities reflects a spiritual malaise that emphasizes ritual over content. What good can come of it? Hopefully a re-evaluation of our own spiritual orientation and our relationships with each other as well as the outside world.

Rubashkin is a communal leader in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, the stronghold of the Chabad-Lubavitch sect of Orthodox Judaism. RESPONDDS TO THE LETTER ABOVE. 5 YEARS AND 250,000 FINE I SEE KOSHER COMPANIES ARE BEING TARGETED AND GIVEN BAD REPUTATIONS ON SEVERAL PLANTS. A REASON TO PUT KOSHER OUT OF BUSINESS. KOSHER IS NEEDED AND PEOPLE DEMAND IT AND WILL NOT TOLERATE KOSHER AS A PASSED HISTORY. FINES IMPRISONMENT THREATS ARE OUT OF CONTROL. INSPECTORS YOU HAVE A PROBLEM GIVE THEM A WARNING TO CHANGE ACCORDING TO THE LAW AND IT WILL BE DONE. INSPECTORS HAVE A BAD REPUTATION AS THE POLICE CONDUCT TO THE PUBLIC.
